2018 Nissan Rogue

Buyer's Guide

The Nissan Rogue is no longer the brand's smallest crossover, a title that shifts to the Qashqai added as an entry-level model for 2018. However, Nissan seems intent on continuing to make the Rogue one of the most tech-intensive compact crossovers with this year's addition of the brand's ProPilot assist system.

That's a feature that builds on active safety items like radar cruise control and lane keeping assist and allows the car to do most of the work in highway driving where the vehicle remains in a single lane.

Nissan calls it the foundation for fully autonomous vehicles of the future and while it doesn't make the car truly self driving, it is intended to make highway driving less stressful for the a human driver by ensuring a steady speed, maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead and providing steering assistance to keep the car centred in its lane.

ProPilot Assist is an option in the Rogue's top SL Platinum trim package.

The SL now gets standard radar cruise, lane departure warning and lane intervention and automatic emergency braking and SV trim gains a standard hands-free tailgate. All trim levels (S, SV and SL) get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, too.

The Rogue has been around in its current form since 2014, having enjoyed a mid-cycle update last year that brought refreshed styling. Still, it hasn't had to work hard to stay current in a fast-changing vehicle segment that more recently has seen the arrival of all-new versions of the Honda CR-V and Volkswagen Tiguan.

VW's entry in this class is a significant one to talk about as it becomes just the fourth compact crossover (after the Rogue, Dodge Journey and Mitsubishi Outlander) to offer three-row seating. That's an option in the Rogue, whose interior doesn't offer loads of space for people in the way back, but it's good enough for a couple of kids. Opt for a five-seat version and you get a cargo area with hidden compartments and adjustable seating configurations.

As before, the Rogue is offered with a single engine and transmission combo that puts together a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that comes with front- or all-wheel drive in S and SV trims and AWD as standard in SL grade.

Some competitors have more efficient engines that offer lower fuel consumption than the Rogue's estimates of 9.7/7.4 L/100 km (city/highway) with AWD and 9.2/7.0 in FWD form.

Very comfortable,would reccomend...
First car I have ever had where I enjoy it as much 2 years after I purchased the car. Would look at upgrading to the newer model with leather and navigation system in the near future. Will stick with Nissan for their quality and resale value...Great car....

2012 Nissan Rogue

by Speedy_Sarb on 10-18-2012

This smaller SUV is a reliable, sleek and sporty vehicle that has decent pep to it.

The SL is quite spacious and has many bells and whistles that will put you in awe (just ask my wife) such as it's no-start policy (push button start) unless the key is inside the vehicle, otherwise the ignition will automatically lock and will not turn over.

For the vertically challenged person, this unit is great as you can easily see over the hood with great comfort.

Take this unit for a drive and you won't be disappointed.

2011 Nissan Rogue

Trim: SV
by WGM12 on 10-11-2012
Comfortable, Reliable and Fun !
Great on gas, very comfortable and good performance for a 4 cylinder vehicle. The Tech package upgrade is worth the money ... adding power sunroof, 18" rimes and tires and an Ipod interface on the stereo that allow Ipod playback via USB connection - cool feature !
Only complaint is that tire pressure light comes on every time the outside temperature changes by 5-10 degrees.
